Apache and Tomcat

Apache and Tomcat Administration Bootcamp combines two of our most popular courses into one week long workshop.

Apache Web Server Administration will cover the details of the httpd.conf configuration file, using .htaccess files, virtual hosts, MIME and file types, URL mapping, directory indexing, performance tuning, handlers, filters, server-side includes, managing scripts, security and Apache modules.

Tomcat Administration covers the details of the server.xml configuration file, an overview of Servlet and JavaServer Pages, a comparison of Tomcat to J2EE application servers, the Tomcat installation directories, deploying Java Web applications, the web.xml file, valves, logging, security realms, connecting Tomcat to Apache Web Server, hosting multiple Web sites, performance and scalability issues, load testing, clustering, monitoring, the Tomcat Manager and the Tomcat Administration tool.

Please note that both Apache Web Server Administration and Tomcat Administration classes can also be taken separately. Visit the individual course pages for pricing and registration information.
